At the core of the prestigious 7th arrondissement, located in a quiet residential neighborhood, you will uncover a hotel embodying “true Parisian chic". A discreet address, situated in the heart of the quarter (rue Cler, rue St Dominique), and steps away from Paris’s most acclaimed monuments. The symbolic dome of Les Invalides is within walking distance to the hotel and the Eiffel Tower and Le Musee Rodin are in close proximity.

"Wonderful service and superior attention to detail!"
We recently stayed at Le Cinq Codet while we were in Paris celebrating my 50th birthday. Alexandre and his stellar staff were amazing to work with. Regardless of the need, they were right there to help and deliver excellent customer service. I highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back! Sincerely, CL Mayer
I stayed here on 14-16 June and wished I had longer. My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding Anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better location. After searching for a hotel for a few months we decided on Le Cinq Codet and a Duplex room and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is in a lovely district (7th) with lots of bars,restaurants nearby. It's only a 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and the River Seine, so very central. The Duplex room was lovely, maybe a little small but bright and clean looking. The bed was comfy and having the bath next to it was a nice touch. The staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke good English. We arrived early in the morning and had already asked if we could store our luggage while we waited to check in for 3pm,but when we arrived the receptionist checked to see if the room was ready and we were told it would only be 20 minutes so we had breakfast in the restaurant and were then shown to our room, great service!! I would definitely recommend this hotel and would love to Paris again. Thankyou Le Cinq Codet for making our trip that little bit more special.
"Good Location, Quiet Setting, Friendly Staff, Decent Rooms, Terrible utilities, Not Worth 5-Stars"
Stayed at this hotel 6/10 through 6/14. The location is very good, metro is close, Eiffel Tower and Invalides are close and walkable to the other main attractions in Central Paris. The rooms are small, but unique and the overall setting is modern and interesting. The staff is also very friendly. The problem with the hotel was the HVAC and the staff's inconsistent ability to resolve the issue. The weather in Paris was relatively hot by Paris standards during our trip, but not sweltering save for one day. We are American, and I know we have different standards for HVAC here, but we do not need it terribly cold (72 is fine, 68 is unnecessary). We changed rooms 3 times due to the sweltering (80+ degree heat) in the rooms and the HVAC's inability to keep up. Management and staff acknowledged the problem, were very friendly, but had a terrible time fixing it. It was finally resolved after 3 room changes. Unacceptable for a hotel of the commercial 5-star or Tripadvisor 4.5-star rating. I know this hotel is among the lowest priced in the 5-star/4.5 star (Tripadvisor) range, but I would advise skipping it if you can find other hotels in the 1st, 2nd, 7th or 8th similarly priced or reviewed. It is, unfortunately, just not worth the hassle.
"Bait and Switch!"
I booked this hotel based on the reviews here on TripAdvisor. My wife wanted a jacuzzi tub and I wanted a view of the city. Instead what we got was a view of the community jacuzzi spa on the 3rd level and a tiny bathtub in our bathroom. Not exactly what we were hoping for. When booking on their website or any 3rd party site, it appears that all rooms on the fourth floor are the same price level and considered "Superior Suites" which is one level below their highest end "Prestige Suite". If I knew in advance I was getting a regular suite at the superior price, I would have instead booked the cheaper duplex suite which has a partial view. Since my email confirmation from Hotels.com didn't specify a jacuzzi tub, I attempted to email the reservations manager via their email link on the Le Cinq Codet website. I wanted to ensure that our 538 sq ft room as booked was indeed one of the Eiffel, Codet, or Rodin suites. The first time I didn't receive a response. The second time, I received an error message. I thought maybe there was an issue with the website while browsing on mobile so I instead used a desktop to send another email. Still no luck. I instead left it to chance that they would do the right thing considering I booked many months in advance. All rooms should be priced individually if they're all indeed different. Why should I pay the same price to stare at the interior of the hotel as the folks across the hall with the jacuzzi and a view of the city' Makes no damn sense! I will be contacting hotels.com and Le Cinq Codet regarding this bait and switch tactic. The actual tub that you get is tiny and will not fit an average sized couple comfortably. The TV system is pretty cool but really who uses the tv when you're in the center of Paris' The bed was not very comfortable either. I had much better sleep at both Best Western's that we stayed at in London and Paris. I'm drafting this review from their very fast WiFi so not all was bad. The room is decent if you ignore the price is the same as the other superior suites that are actually superior. Service upon check-in was great and he even offered a bottle of champagne to be delivered to the room. I don't know about you but I would take a view instead of a bottle of booze any day. Two stars due to the good service. Negative stars for the bait and switch, then having the balls to charge additional tax upon checking out!
"Overpriced and underwhelming"
We arrived late and tired from our trip and had to spend half an hour checking in and half-listening to explanations about how to work the switches in the room, which are numerous and unmarked - you need one to open and close the curtains, to turn on and off various lights, etc. Opening and closing the taps in the bathroom proved a challenge, as they were hard to figure out and would not yield to soapy hands. The 21st century décor included a photo of a nude woman and black and white abstract smudges. The following morning we had to walk three blocks to the nearest cafe! We returned after a long day to find out our room unmade! Apparently, we had inadvertently pushed the button for "do not disturb!" I was unhappy and let them know it, and was offered a cup of tea as an apology! I accepted a glass of wine instead, which I do not feel compensates for the steep price we had to pay for a very unsatisfactory stay.
